creatology™ clay reindeer photo holder

This project is intended for kids ages 4+.
Step 1

Knead brown clay in your hands for a few minutes. Pinch a small piece from the brown clay and set aside, then roll the rest into a ball. Form the ball into an oval-like shape to form your reindeer’s head. Set aside.

Step 2

Mix the small brown pinch of clay with a very small amount of black clay to get a darker shade of brown.

Step 3

Divide the rest of the darker brown clay into two equal parts and shape each into two reindeer antlers.
TIP: Use image as a guide. Draw your shape onto your wax (or palette) paper then shape the clay over the drawing.

Step 4

Gently push the antlers into opposite sides of your reindeer’s head.

Step 5

Glue two small wiggle eyes into place. Let dry.

Step 6

Use a marker to draw a mouth.

Step 7

Glue a sequin in place for a nose. Let dry.

Step 8

Coil a chenille pipe cleaner into a hat. On the top of the hat, create a spiral to hold your photo. On the other end, bend the chenille pipe cleaner downward and push into the top of your reindeer’s head.

Step 9

Knead white clay for a few minutes and shape into a puddle (or pile) of snow. Set your reindeer into the snow to create a stable base.

Step 10

Set in a safe place to dry for at least 24 hours.
